Women prominently interested in tho
child labor conditions of this city i:nv
it rr their opinion to 11 Hum reporter yes
terday that tho .Statu factory commis
sion in doinn wonderful work by tho
investigation which closed its local hear
ings on Friday, They IjcIIhvo effective
legislation will result nnd that tho com
mission itel'f is ulready convinced of tho
need of such legislation.
Miss Mary Drfder, president of the
Women's Trade Union and a member
of tho commission, is hopeful of legisla
tion, although she would make no direct
statement of what may he cttpected,
owing to her position as a member of the
commission, .She said:
The testimony In relation to working In
tenements Indicates very clearly that there
Is only one course to purine, und that is to
abolish It It couldn't be regulated. There
was not one person a a witness who could
say or did say that the wage which the
children and the mothers Jointly earned
could keep them alive, The children and
mothers were on the verge of starvation
and practically had to be supported by
charity; so why not have them completely
supported by charity until we can get a

New York attracted a great many un
desirables and ninny exhausted men be
cause of tho leeway of tenement house
work. -Many r ilie men began to work
when too young and are thus used up. It
all seems to iialleate timt eventually we must
put n stop i. tenement house work. It
presses down factory wages for one thing.
I am very hopeful. The testimony was
wonderful. Kverybody had n chance to
testify Kuiployers were notified by the
commission and yet a cotnpaiatlvely small
number of employers appeantl. Those that
did said that If tenement house work could
not be. regulated It should be abolished.
Some employers said cigarette manufne
Hiring ought to be abolished.
There has been no rsenpe for the children
from work, tln-y have had no time for piny,

this testimony. Also the hearings on the
fire hill will be helpful, resulting In valuable
suggestions which should result In better
legislation than If no hearings had been

of the National Consumers League,

I .Ml these nbl commissioners have been
giving their s.Mvices in travelling about
the State, visiting n iierson the factories
and ennuertes. listening patiently 'knoWta

witnesses' In order to get at the bottom, of
the conditions In the factories and work

for criticism and suggestion, from tho tm
ployrrs who will bo affected by the bill and
Irom the advocates of restrictive legisla

from both sides.
Wo expect a long step forward In th
legislation of this State for tho protection
of women ami minors and children at tho

Miss Pauline Gold mark etecutir ao
retury of the Consumers' League of Nw
York city, was a witness before the com
mission. Yesterday sho said,:
This commission has performed a grt
service in turning the light on th two form
or unrestricted child labor in this Stat.
They have revealed through skillful In
vestigation by their own Investigator tb
exploitation of children In the up-State
canneries nnd 'In the city sweatshop. 'In
both places children of all ages hava been
found vvorklt-; for entirely unlimited hours.
The community has been shocked at th
ext ent of t hose forms ot child labor and seem
at length to be awakening to the' urgent
need or Immediate legislation to abolish
these evils, When these facts ar fully
appreciated New Vork will no longer allow
little-children to be deprived of their child
